Who Will Start, Heyer or Jansen?

I keep hearing that Heyer has transformed himself into a lean mean fighting machine. I was wondering, who everyone feels at this point, will start at right tackle. I am going out on a limb and saying Heyer.

Daniels may move inside.

Outside of that, the only three players in the starting lineup who might be in danger are McIntosh, Doughty, and Springs...if Rogers is healthy.

I should have clarified myself better. I was talking about the Oline. Although I disagree with Springs, doughty and Springs. I say they are all solid in their spots.

I'd bet on them all staying in their spots as well.

OL figures to be the same starting five as last year. Rabach might be on a quick hook if he struggles again, though it shouldn't be as hard on him with all the other guys in the lineup again.

Re: Who Will Start, Heyer or Jansen?

Good thread topic.

I haven't heard anything on Heyer this offseason (if anybody has a link to an article please post), but he did not look like starting material IMO last season. Jansen will start... I wouldn't bet a single dollar he finishes the season. I re-reviewed some preseason tape from 07 and Jansen looked like the slowest player on the field every single down. IMHO opinion he was doomed to get hurt because when you're slow in a game of speed you're gonna get trampled or rolled up on or something. Hopefully, he's started to take better care of himself and increased his quickness. I've been a little pessimistic about Jansen since I heard him complain of the heat in D.C. and admit that he "eats like crap." With millions on hand I might think about hiring a chef who can satisfy my appetite and keep me in tip-top shape - how is it that half of hollywood does it but it's somehow too much to ask of a professional athlete?

I can't see Springs getting benched. Last season he was solid and at his healthiest in years, which he says is a result of better diet/exercise. Seems like he learned how to best take care of himself. I think Smooty will start over Rogers. Smooty gets all out digs for laying that nasty hit on Hasselback last year. I'm sure that stuck out in coach Zorn's mind too.

Not unless it's due to injury.

Who's likely to get injured and do you think Reinhardt will get first shot at backup?

I think it will be Jansen, but I wont go as far as to say its a "no brainer", Heyer played well last year, and I just worry about Jansens injury and if he'll be the same player after his second surgery. I'm a huge Jansen guy, and I ulitmatley think he will be our guy, but I really wouldnt be suprised if Heyer gave him a real run.

It will be Jansen. That being said Jansen could very easily go down again and you could see Heyer. I really doubt that Jansen will be pulled due to performance issues though.

I would be shocked and awed if a healthy Jansen was not starting opening day.

I'll go that far.

Jansen is easily the starter if he's healthy, which he is right now.

I don't see where there's even any debate. I see Jansen coming back with a serious chip on his shoulder ready to prove the doubters wrong.

Right tackle worries me and I do not think it would be out of the question, though not likely that Wade could start if healthy because he might be the best run blocker of the three. If Heyer were a little bigger, like 6'7 330 instead of 6'6 320, i'd be i little bit more optimistic about his chances, but because of his lack of quickness and average size; i'd say he's a backup at best and this is Jansen's last season.
Since when is 320 6-6 not big enough, thats prototypical size.
